Design house les Ateliers Flown crafts a cantilever desk from a rare Boeing737-800 winglet

In the past, we have seen designers create some amazing things out of aircraft part such as the round table made from a jet turbine and a Boeing 777 wheel transformed into a stylish coffee table. Now we have another table, or rather a desk, which has been derived from the winglet of a rare Boeing 737-800 aircraft. Designed by les Ateliers Flown, the unique furniture piece not only looks classy but also is quite practical in terms of usage. 4 meters long, endless perspective started by a sensual and voluptuous curve, the structure is stabilized by a sea pearl granite block emerging from the ground, a gesture that intends to play on the subtle balance between Aerian and Earthly.

‘This winglet had set the bar high and thus it was essential to sublimate it and exploiting the majesty of this part in applying noble materials and high-end finishing,’ the design studio claims. The Cantilevers desk will be offered at auction during the next aeronautics auction organized by the auction house Artcurial on 2 March 2015.
